CULT CLASSIC NIGHT

HITCH HIKE (Feature)

Barely released theatrically in America, HITCH HIKE has been called “One of the greatest exploitation films no one has ever seen.”

Co-Writer/Director Pasquale Festa Companile (Director of WHEN WOMEN HAD TAILS and an Oscar nominee for writing FOUR DAYS IN NAPLES) packs this outstanding sleaze epic with wild performances, eroticism, extreme violence and some very nasty surprises, all set to a remarkable music score by Ebnnio Morricone.

Starring FRANCO NERO (DJANGO), CORINNECLORY (THE STORY OF O), and DAVID HESS (THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT) it is presented here on the big screen totally uncut and uncensored.

THE SMALL WORLD OF SAMMY LEE

The compère of a seedy strip club struggles to keep one step ahead of the bookies to whom he owes money.

Featuring the greatest screen performance by the legendary Anthony Newley, this remarkable movie from the golden era of British 60s filmmaking was thought to be lost until about 8 years ago when a print was found and lovingly restored by the British Film Institute.

Newley’s performance at the peak of creativity is undoubtedly is his finest dramatic role and he gives his all to it. C-starring Wilfred Brambell, Robert Stephens, Warren Mitchell and Miriam Karlin. Sammy Lee’s world is indeed a small one inhabited by pimps, drug dealers, gamblers, sleazy strip shows, and gangsters, but it is also a world you won’t long forget.

A world that Sammy will find almost impossible to escape from in the few desperate hours in which he finds out the cold reality of what his life is really worth. Lovers of cinema and acting will treasure this gem.

THIS IS A RARE AND PROBABLY ONLY CHANCE TO SEE THESE LONG LOST CLASSICS ON THE BIG SCREEN. IF YOU MISS THEM, YOU’LL BE MAD.
